One of Leicestershire's most recognisable companies, Everards is a family brewers, founded in 1849, and now boasting over 170 tenanted pubs across the county.


They're on the lookout for ambitious new management to run two of their most popular country pubs.


Two of these pubs, The Coach & Horses in Lubenham and The Soar Bridge Inn in Barrow upon Soar, are currently seeking new management teams.


The two opportunities are perfect for either individuals or couples, looking to run their own pub business, but with the backing and support of Everards.

The Coach & Horses is located a stone's throw from the bustling town of Market Harborough, in the beautiful, medieval village of Lubenham (which is cited in the Domesday Book).


The village offers a historic church, playground, primary school, and the annual Scarecrow festival, as well as being a popular pitstop for cyclists.


The pub itself sits on the main road in the heart of the Lubenham community. It's well regarded for its tasty menu, outside drinking and dining, children's play area, and even boasts its own outside smokehouse. It has consistently held a position in the Top 5 restaurants on Trip Advisor.


The pub would suit someone with a passion for food, looking to carve out their own business within this historic building. There will be an informal open at the pub on Monday, June 20, between 3pm and 8pm for anyone interested in finding out more about the pub, or the industry in general.


To reserve a space, please contact Aarti Tailor at Everards on 07894 093978, or by email. Find out more about the pub on the Everards website.

The Soar Bridge Inn is located in the historic Barrow upon Soar, one of the jewels of Charnwood Forest.


Not only is the pub a short walk from the Grand Union canal, it's home to the skeletal remains of Barrow's own dinosaur, affectionately known as the Barrow Kipper. The village itself has a popular, and well-appointed high street.


Originally called The Railway, the pub was built in the Victorian age - the era of the steam train! Records show it has also been used as a hostel for passing boatmen from the nearby canal network.


Today, it's a well-loved venue offering tasty pub grub, a wide range of ales and beers, and boasts, among other things, its own skittle alley!


If you'd be interested in running this pub - or know someone who might be - you can get in touch with Louisa Golightly at Everards on 07885 268740, or by email to discuss in more detail.
